You have heard the saying that God won't give you more than you can handle, right? Well, I happen to think I know just how much I can handle. I mean, we all have stuff going on and we can sink into pity party's pretty fast and we can raise our hands up and simply say, "REALLY???"
Today I was at the gym, doing my daily HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and compared it to the High Intensity of certain life happenings right now. During one of the stations, we were asked to get a set of dumb bells. I have been doing this for 18 months and so I reached for the same set of dumb bells that I always do. My trainer called me out in front of everyone and said, "No, Kim. Those are not what you need anymore." She went to the kettle bells and handed me a pair that were 10 pounds heavier than the dumbbells. Well, now that everyone was watching, I had to act like I could actually manage this increase in weight with no problem. What do you know? It was easy! I had no idea I was able to handle the added weight, and even if I couldn't, I was surely going to pretend like I could because she believed in me and I didn't want to let her down.
With me, if I coach you, I may ask you questions and ask you to do things that may not be what you are used to. I will believe in you and I will simply point out when you are ready for the "heavier weight" and in our partnership, just like my training at the gym, you will do your best because you feel me believing in you and it's at that moment, you start believing in you too.

So friends, here we are.. a month after those New Years Resolutions were made. How are you doing with those? I will admit, I don't make any.

I completely believe in "self-improvement" and meeting goals.. don't get me wrong, but not at the expense of losing your self love.
